here was the state of the presidential race one month ago tonight. take a look at this. president obama and mitt romney were essentially neck and neck, all throughout the summer, and then, boing! president obama very quickly and very dramatically jumped out to a six-point lead. what happened all of a sudden to cause that sort of jump? well, right here was president obama's speech at the democratic convention in charlotte. what you're looking at thereafter is what people call the post-convention bounce. after what had been a static race, president obama not only jumped ahead in national polls like this gallup daily tracking poll, but he also jumped out to a sizable lead in all the key swing states. here's what the race looked like around this time last month. president obama was up in virginia, up in in new hampshire, almost could not find a swing state poll that did not show president obama increasing his lead. this is what a post-convention bounce, and a good one, looks like. and it was a bounce that lasted for a while. a pew poll released more than a week after the democratic conventi

's presidential debate. where mitt romney was widely viewed as the winner over barack obama. both sides say they're ready. >>i know how he will attack us. >>i think joe just needs to be joe. ryan is a smart and effective speaker. his ideas are the wrong ones. though biden is considered more experienced than ryan. political analysts say the vice president must avoid making one of his well-documented gaffes that end up distracting from the message. an issue that's sure to come up at tonight's debate is federal funding of amtrak. the company gets roughly one- point-four billion dollars a year in federal subsidies and counts vice president biden as one of its biggest supporters. biden has made more than 79- hundred round trips from wilmington, delaware to washington, d-c during his time on capitol hill. ryan's budget plan cuts federal subsides for amtrak and high speed rail projects. republicans favor privatizing the industry instead. national polls have the race for president in a dead heat but the president can still count on support in illinois. in a new tribune wgn-tv poll 55 percent of illi
